Twin Cities employment lawyer and blogger T.J. Conley analyzes the decision and its import against Medtronic and in favor of St. Jude Medical.  Conley concludes that Ramsey County Judge M. Michael Monahan got it right, though the case broke no new legal ground.  A commenter to TJ’s blog chimed in, “Who was the mystery lawyer who advised McCullough and told him the noncompete was not enforceable?”  From Conley’s discussion of Monahan’s decision, it is clear that Medtronic went to some lengths to try to immunize itself and its new employee, Joe McCullough, from such an action by St. Jude and presumably Medtronic had carefully weighed the risks/benefits.
